(PART 1)

Prejudice occurs when we prejudge a person because of race, gender, religion, profession and so on. Often we inherit prejudices from our forefathers. Far from innocuous, prejudice is sin in God's eyes.

READ: Ex. 1:8-14; Ex. 22:21-27; Deut. 10:17-19; Is. 61:1-9; Acts 10:34-35; James 2:1-9.
HEART ISSUE: Did you inherit any prejudices you need to get rid of? To whom do you need to say, "I'm sorry"?
PRAYER FOCUS: Father, thank You for revealing the strongholds in my heart. Please continue Your cleansing work in me. Help me think, feel and respond as Jesus would. Amen.

(PART 2)

Unity doesn't mean we lose our individuality. Biblical unity appreciates uniqueness through sincere love. The more we know one another, the more we can genuinely love one another.

READ: Ps. 133:1-3; Jer. 32:17-19; Eph. 4:7-16; Col. 3:5-14; Heb. 13:1-3; 1 Pet. 3:8-14.
HEART ISSUE: Are you willing to invest time and energy getting to know others who are seemingly not like you?
PRAYER FOCUS: Father, let me see others through Your eyes. Give me Your heart of love for all kinds of people. Amen.
